Easy Tiara Cupcake Toppers

These little cuties are so easy to make, you could even get the little ones to help.
The first thing you’ll need is a star cutter with 6 points. The size depends on how big you want the tiara to be. I’ve included a ruler in this picture to give you an idea of the size I used.

Roll a thin piece of fondant & cut out a star. Cut the star symmetrically & you now have the basic skeletons of 2 tiaras.

I used small plunger cutters to decorate these but you could use any micro cutter or even the front end of piping nozzles to cut out a design.

Now wrap the tiara around a cylindrical object to shape it. The size of this will depend on the size of star cutter you use. I’ve used a kiddies rolling pin, which was the perfect size for the size of cutter I used. Let them dry for a few hours or overnight.

Once they’re firm & holding their shape, pour some edible glitter onto some parchment paper. Lightly paint the tiara with either water or gum glue & thoroughly cover with glitter.

Carefully shake off excess & leave aside to dry.

You’ll notice that even though I used purple glitter, the tiara looks pink. This is because I used white fondant. If I had used pink or purple fondant, it would have resulted in a purple tiara. I recommend using odd pieces of fondant to test before you get started. You don’t have to make a complete tiara, just dust different coloured pieces fondant with different coloured glitters until you find a combination you’re happy with.

Once the glitter is dry the tiaras are ready for the cupcakes. Enjoy!

Until next time,
